Mob Influenced By False Report Attacks Inhbcent Negroes Without Warning. Police And 
Militiamen reused As Leaders. Woman 'Fails In Attempt To Lead Cowardly Gang 




Perform Heroic Did* In Tornadc District 

'Negroea did heroic work iu rescuing r used them as* a special crew to handle 

victime of the tornado at Miners! 
Aoint,- Mo., Decoration Day. Con- 
ductor John E. Gregg, of thf Iron 
' Mountain, in telling of the disaster, 


"Tbeta.wer* a- score o( Negroes tt 
Mineral Point who volunteered to. aid 
in the rescues. They performed feats of 
strength in lifting heavy debris that 
whites were unable to badge, thru re- 
leasing persons who -had beta pinned 
beneath it. 

"On* Negro lifted the fallen roof 
Of the railroad nation at the direction 
of Orsgg, who saw the foot of a man 
beneath it. The body was that of 
Sopt. La . Mas tern, a , companion of 
Oragg.'i for twenty years. Le Masters 
waa deadj and' the body crushed almost 
beyond recognition. _ 

' ' Out of the wreckage »i ennld t«i 
the pitiful cries of men, women and 
children. Many of their forms could be 
aeen plainly through the timbers and" 
trees that; had fallen over them," 
Gregg said. ' * • " 

''We fell to work with a vengeance, 
dragging off tbo timbers where we 
knew someone was being, crushed. II 
was difficult work in places. There 
wore a, number' oil large Negroea who 
had survived the storm/ and were work- 
ing like Trojans with the -passenger* 
and ere.w. resiled then) together arid 

the stuff that the white passengers had 
been unable to remove. It was simply 
wonderful how those Negroes worked. 
Nothing could resist them. They un- 
doubtedly saved many lives that might 
have been snuffed out but' for their 
magaiaoent strength and energy. I 
hope they all get full credit for their 
noble work. / . 

"One building had fallen on Mrs.' 
Mary Golden and her Ave --children. 
Mrs. Golden'* back waa broken, but 
she wo* still conscious and able to cry 
out to us when we arrived. It waa a 
hard job to dig down to those poor suf- 
ferers and -it required my Negro eroiv 
to do it We got them out, and I think 
the fire children will 

Injured Harroaa Not 
- "There ware Ave Negroes. Injured se- 
verely by the 'storm, and after wa .had 
ned all that we could see or boar, 
Negro crew started to carry away 
r injured from' the spot. _Jl in' 
vited them to put the injured Negroes 
aboard the train and we earned them 
toDe Soto, where they received medical 

aid. . 

Those black men didn't seem to ex- 
pect any help for their own kind, .even 
way th'e/nad worked, and I 
couldn't help thinking that the mob in 
East'St. Louis was making an awful 
mistake in beating up such-fellows." I

The closing exercise of the Motin

night, was witnessed by a' niee and an 
interested audience. % ' 

The presence of a number of repre- 
sentative men and women of the race 
waa a fitting tribute fit appreciation 
for 'the noble and unselfish devotion 
that has characterized the work of the 
teacher, especially during the last term 
of ber school here. ' • 

The work of. the students reflected 
much credit upon .their teacher, in that 
each number rendered by them 
reived many rnunds of applause- 
Misses Allen in a piano dnot, 
Misses Smith and/Edwards in i 
lection froju^DSnbar, came in for their 
share. Other participants were: Mrs. 
Lyda Banks, a eiator of Mine. Motin;

- Thursday eveniag. May, 31, after 
three days of spasmodic rioting, every- 
thing seemed to be quieted down in 
East St. Louis. The trouble started 
nearly two month* ago when the strike 
was called at jthe Aluminum Ore Works 
and strikers were -displaced by Ne- 
groes. It ia said that a. movement wns 
immediately set on foot by tho unions' 
to stop importation of ..the Negroes, be- 
cause it was feared that they would 
used by sanplovers 1 
strikes which we're -srhcdu 
place in the early summer. > 
meetings have boeu h-M'd 
thing that could be brought into, play, 
except mob violence, had been ex- 
hausted. During these six or eipht 
weeks of the' strike, (ho Negroes ' were 
getting a firmer hold on the industrial 
tuation; and strikers were getting 
weaker and hungrier each day. Many 
of tho industries have dectnred against, 
unions; nnd tha Negro labor, honest 
and conscientious, was fast winning 
the hearts of the managers of the ri 

On Monday night a meeting 
called at 'the City Hall by the strikers 
and an appeal waa made to the Mayor 
to do something for'the hungry 
ox soniething would be done by it, Tbe 
blame for tbe ajtuatinn^ was shifted 
from one source to another. Some said 
it was the manufacturers; others laid 
it on the Negroes; and still others said 
it was the railroad. ft> there was a 
AlvMon among them^Tt Was suggest 
ed during 'the mrit'tiliB to "get" the 
railrosd men: and another was to 
"drive out the 'Negroes and we will 
get our jobs hack with higher wages'" 
This latter suggesflon seemed to meet 
the -popular chord. By this time the 
eloquence of the. agitators had nlnile 
the mob ferocious. - Coineident wiih 
the dismissal of the. meeting, n ■report

On Tuesday night one i 
reporters mingled with tho crowd nnd 
saw the military men oomo'on tho 
aeone u They, too, were seen and heard 
to aaj", "We don't have to see every- 
thing." "Several military men were ar-

members of the mob only moyed^in a 
small area, for they were afraid Aft- 
er several .attempts to' get a lender. 
it was suggested to go get '.'Ruby." 
Ruby seemed to bo-a' notorious char-

of nil .street cars which rmi into Mron.l 
way near the bridgei "nnd there thev 
gnlhered sticks; rocks and liri'ck's ana 
nttseked every Negro seen, flominger, on the. ears. ' Tho JJegrnes were 
caught unprepared to defend them 
selves;- and most of them found on the 
streets were aasaultcJ by (he mobs. No 
frttalrties wrire reported. ' , '

formed little groups and discussed 
. plans, for' the -noraing" night, of 
in. everybody with .a whi.H» face 
was accepted as an eticmy of the-Nf; 
groes.; and there was no .hesilnney^is 
telling just what they were eipeetino 
toidn that night. Those thst mnde'up 
the raob.'sbowpd their usual enw.ardiee 
by urging tho police and. the eity of- 
ficials to dithrm the Negroes. The. po- 
JiBe were the principal ones appealed 
to. In .some instanRee the.]u>liee were 
heard to say. "Eidy*i I .am with you," 
This esperially applies to the uniform 
men, as the plain clothes men seemed 
to try to do their duty by. advising 
the mob to disperse; and on several oc- 
casions told them that' the Negroes 
were arming themselves and '-'hell'' 
would-be to pay if they went down in 
the Negro settlement. - 

Negroes Being *eau-cbed.— Th- Ne- 
groes woke. up to, the situation Tues- 
day and fully, realised just what thej. 
wsrn up against, when all Negroes whn 
tterspied to- cross the' Mississippi- IUv 1 - 
r fo 8t. Louis were searched Tor prms 
and it waa stated tha^ the Wnyor'of 
East At. Louis, at tbe request "o'f the. 
mob. had telephoned tbe Chief,of Po- 
lice of Rt. [..mis to 'Issue an order to 
prohibit the sale of arms -and munition 
.to' Negroes, This' order was.'i 
into effect and Negroes were refused, 
arms at the stores, bjit somehow they 
seemed to And qaite a. large number 
anyway. . Another difSoulty met -by 
Negroes was on t i;ei r return to East 
Bt. Louis. Police searched every Ne- 
gro who passed over the twn "main 
bridges-; and as t result, roany nf them 
were caught with ' the' '■;:■-.■'. -1> ' ■ on 
thero. One aoto of arms .was sent- by

to go off.. Sho (urnejland swore and 
threw' it on, the street and that was the 
euH'of "Ruby." ■ | . ' ' ' 

There has been mlirh asid about the 
work of the mob. What they did to 
the Negro wns in'ucli exaggerated. Aa 
soon as the Negf a was able to arm him- 
self and protect his home, the whims 
of the ;mob were no longer a terror. 
One prominent colored. ihnti was heard ■ 
to say. that "as lo&e-'nn the stath or

The race riot that broke out in East St. Louis during this week 
was the direct result of labor trouble that has been brewing in 
that city for some time. Bast St. Louis being a large industrial and 
manufacturing city, large numbers of laboring class of people have 
been attracted there on account of high wages. Labor Unions have 
sought to control the labor that is used in the industries. In antic- 
ipation of a general strike in the near future, the Unions were face 
to face with the one great problem, and that was the Negro. They 
realized full well that the Negro (as a rule) was denied admit- 
tance to the Unions and those who did belong, were denied admit- 
tance to their councils. The Unions had decided that owing to tke 
scarcityof labor on account of the war, they would force the man- 
ufacturers to acceedro every demand.' 

The influx of Negro labor each day made the chances for tieing 
up the wheels of the industry lead and less. So after many weeks 
of sweating over the matter, a conclusion was reached that the best 
way to carry out their anticipated strike was to run the Negroes 
out of town, or frighten them sufficiently enough to get newspaper 
noterioty and make it appear to -all the world, that East St. Louis 
is a dangerous place for Negroes. The scheme worked quite well. 
Politics were their-main strings to draw upon.' These strikers got 
the ear of the Mayor of the city, and they whispered a little 
buncombe politics in his ears, and he" (the Mayor) "lell for it" 
and rendered the mob assistance, which precipitated the riot. 

"Sowing the Wind and in the near future,^ they will reap 
the Whirl Wind. It is stated that the Mayor and police officers 
condoned the actions of the mob that beat up Negroes and de- 
stroy ed-their property. These officials, let their prejudices get the 
better of their common judgment. Wejiredict that this outbreak 
of lawlessness, is but the beginning; it was meant only to clear the 
way for the real conflict that is- coming, and the next time it will 
not be an attack on the ' damn nigger, " but it will be on the own 
. crs of industries. The industrial and manufacturing plants, and 
this same mob, the same leaders, will mock at the city authorities 
when they shall try to interfere. 'This is the law of nature. Like 
the poisonous venom that' you take into your bosom might 
have life, it will strike you because it is its nature to bite. ' 

TheMayorof East'St.Lsujs should know that the same men 
who are clamoring loudest for Negroes to assault and mob now, 
will later ask for his head on a charger, if he at tern pttsto: interfere 
with them; for every act of acquiescence on the part of the polMe or 
any other officer of the law in the deeds done by the mob has/, only- 
served to make mob violence and disrespect for law and order 
greater, It is to be regretted that men in responsible positions can 
so easily become blinded by prejudice or petty politics, that they 
will forget the real responsibility of their offices. 

"He that soweth the wind shall reap the whirl wind.' 1

The broader view of the question of play grounds viid recrea 
tion fields' in certain, localities; must be taken consideration in 
arriving at any. just conclusion. 

The position taken by the Park, Commissioner, Mr. Cunlifi?,.with 
regard to the proposed Park and Play Grounds on the Tiffany Tract 
Cardinal Avenue and Market Street; was the most logical one to be 
taken uader the circumstances. We believe that the beat interest 
of the community ia served by ■' continuing llis-Pine Street play 
ground at present. . ': 

A community play ground especially where the colored people 
are in the majority, or are to be the principal beneficiaries, should 
be located in the best possible locality; and under thft most favor- 
able conditions. ' It would be oetter to wait another season than to 
be willing to accept a' less favorable location. Those of our race 
who are alwaya willing to accept anything offeredVor to move 
along theline of least resistance, are the ones that clog' the wheels 
of progress of the race. "■,-■.' 

.■The act of Mr. Cunliff in the matter was a conscientious one, 
for he knew deep down in his heart that "a better location would 
-serve the community better, and the expenditure of money in an 
undesirable location . {though the cost was. less) would -be false 
economy. . ".".". 

. The people of this community need a first class play ground 
and if itrequires a bond issue t'oget it, then we must have the 
bond. ..... .

The Negro Training Camp fostered by the United States gov-

preached "A United People." -- .'•--'..

that the goodXord' is so just that every time a mob' breaks out

mllltary traditions, to become, a mili- 
taristic people. 

While the Act of 1792 made every 
man of military are and fltnesi liable 
to' Federal military iervlce. It dele- 
gated to tfie several States the mili- 
tary organliatlon of these men, and 
It granted to Ihe Sin tea tha power 
to make, exemptions. 

The hkttory of New York, whleh Ie 
In this respect ssbstant tally that of 
all the States. . I Ilusirates how. badly 
(be States fulfilled the military duties 
laid upon them by the Federal Govern- 
ment. In New York there was' at Bret 
an annual enrollment. En lS4n the 
Legislature granted exemption from 
military duty to everyone upon pay- 
ment of a fe» of TS cents a year. 
Enrollment* wpr<- then made to oc- 
cur bjanniiany: heit. (fi occur al "Very

Governor ', No Governor. I believe, 
ever has cailcri an enrollment. Mean- 
while, the. n on -service tax was' re- 
duced (o 50 rents, and shortly there- 
after It .was abandoned. Thus died 
the Federal. Militia, which had been 
created Tor t the- National defense! 

Vrotest Apalnat- Military LaxltyJ - 

During the^dnlln.tegratlon of - the 
Federal militia a ■ volunteer force) 
sprang up. aa a protest against the 
military laxjty of the authorities. This 
force waa accepted and aubBldlied. try 
the States, and became, what Is' .known 
as the National Guard. Having no 
atandlng under the Federal law the 
guard waa a body- wholly local b 
character, and was not recogntied by 
the Federal Government, until earljr 
In the present' century. 

The Conetliutlon. while forbldilng 
the Btatee to maintain troop* or ships 
of, war. (without the consent of Con- 
greaa) had- bound, the Federal Govern- 

ment to defend tha State* from In- 
vasion, and the Federal Government, 
In I7S2., had provided the national 
force sjfaady described to carry out 
this, purpose. But this force, aa we 
have seen, the States have permitted 
to die: and In it* stead each had era 
ated for Its protection a little army 
of Its own, called a National Guard, 
and' In ao doing had taken over from 
the Federal Government 'Its own de- 
fense, to be maintained at It* own 
coat, and had .anamed also the duty 
□f defending the Federal Government 
Tliui bad the Federal Government and 
the State* exchanged place*, in their 
military relationship. 

.The conaeqnences of this snrrender 
of military power by the Nation are 
now eeen to be exceedingly haanrdooa 
to the national welfare, to be nearly 
insupportable hy ton States, on ac- 
count of tbo ■ heavy financial burden s 
involved, and to he Inequitable to 
those' Mo compose these little State 
armies. There "Is therefore eubatan- 
tl*l agreement among all who have 
studied the inbject that there mast 
be brought about (be Immediate adop- 
tion of a broad and equitable military 
system which shall be wholly national 
In character. 

Democratle Military Structure. 

Aa the foundation of such a ayatem 
already exists in the Federal law. ha 
ha* "been shown above, It remains only 
for the nation to build upon that foun- 
dation a modern democratic military 
structure,, and ta. remove such Lagli- 
laturn's reatrlctlon* as prevent the 
compulsion of every man! at military 
age and fitness to serve beyond the 
borders of the United States— In 
Mexico, for instance, ft need should 
there arise — as he must "bow serve 
within hi* own territory. 

Universal liability to military aarv- 
Ica being fixed In the law. th* anartlon 
now arises, shall w* ' sot train our 
young men tn such a manner that 
they will be the mora able to per- 
form effectively the pstrlotlc duty 
which the law hat bound upon them. 
with- the maximum of comfort and 

safety for themselveat - / - 

The education of a youth to become 
a literate and uavful cltlaen already 
la compulsory. Modern condition* of 
life demand that he ihall be nude 
*lso highly efficient ' In phyaique, 
morale and dlaofallna. And th* se- 
curity of the nation' requires that he 
shall be taught to perform, with ease 
and precision, .on- rand or sea. the 
military service the law^and -national 
security demand of hfm. 

Experience and Intelligent observa- 
tion hav* shown that this, training 
should be given not later than when 
the yonth closes hi* common school 
career. 1 - »nd that tt should be treated 
** a Jfiahlng course in pbyelcal de- 
velopment, character building; tke 
military sciences, and patriotism, j 
Merely Education* I .Extension. 

Thus, universal military or naval 
training ahould be treated merely as 
an extension or a youth'* customary 
course of studies, and It should he 
given blm at the expense of the Fed- 
eral Government, to whom he owee 
allegiance. With his' clothing. Iraep. 
and instruction furnished him gratl*, 
his parents will be relieved erf uti 
cost of maintenance during hla , train- 
ing, probably for. the flret time' In

he should, be s strong, straight.

start: every American hoy 1* entitled. 
And.\what la more- Important If we 
are to retain our liberties, the Amer 
lean' youth win' thus "have become an 
efficient soldier or sailor. 

In order to meot the requirement* 
of our situation, therefore, two 
changes must be made In our mili- 
tary system. The law must. extend the 
Itahlllty /of our cltlxena for military 
service so that their service, shall not 
be our borders, and It moat 
Inaugurate military training for all 
young men. " * 

In conclnslon, I'cannot refrain from 
quotlng-tbe war-wise words of that 
beloved soldier ol the Revolutionary 
period. Light Hone Harry Lee: "A

Thfc Message |f 
from Golgotha 

By RBV. B. B. B P TUUgF B 

TEXT-Ther crucified bin, and 
aaalirsctora. ons on Um right hum, ud 
i other on to* lift— Luke 13:11. 

Some time ago there was exhibited 
In the dty of Chicago a "large picture 
called "Golgotha. 1 
It was a represen- 
tation of the scene 
when Tens and 
the two * thieves 
were eruclfled. 
the mliist of tha 
crowd and rising 
from the brow of 
the hill there were 
to be sees the 
three crosses npon 
which were the 
forma Of those cru- 
el Bed. The wood- 
en crossed; have 
long sines fallen 
Into decay, bnt the 
rnessngea given 
in them are still' to be heard. 

■ The Center Cross. 
From trie center cross there conies 
the message (hat provision has. been 
made for the taking away of man's 
sin. This provision has txfen made by 
God alone. He needed no assistance 
from man. The prophet has said thnt 
It pleased the Lord to bruise him; he 
has pot him to grief (Uuilah 53:10). 
Peter has declared that onr Lord was 
delivered by the determinate' counsel 
and foreknowledge of God (Acts 2 :23>. 
Anil Pnul has declared "God commend- 
. ed his love toward us In that while we 
Were yet slluers Christ died for tta" 
(Romans 5:8). It will be seen that 
this provision has been made by God 
through sacrifice, for Jeaus wns the 
Lnmb of God taking away the sin of 
the world (John 1:28), He was the 
folflllment or the types of the Old Tes- 
tament. Toe coat of skins wherewith 
Adam, wns clothed, the blood of tho 
Iamb which protected the 'people In 
Egypt on the Passover night. thebffer- 
Inga of blood of Leviticus, and all the 
Slain beasts offered In. sacrifice, point 
to the fundamental truth that "without 
the shedding of blood there la no re- 
mission" (Hebrews 8:22). Not only 
la this provision mode by God alone 
and by sacrifice,' but It la made by the 
sacrifice of a substitute. Cong before 
^Christ came, the prophet had declared 
f" thaf "he was to be wounded for onr 
transgressions and bruised for our In- 
iquities. All we like sheep, hate enye 
astray and the Lord has laid on him 
the Iniquity of as all" (leelnh S3 :5, 8). 
And when at last that substitute came, 
Peter declared that he "hla own self 
bare our sin* |h his own body oil the 
tree** (I Peter 2:24). This one upon 
the center cross. Is there In man's 
place, standing In man's stead, the sub- 
stitnte to whom Is charged all of rain's 
sin . the sacrifice, blotting out by his 
own blood, the iniquity of man. This 
one hi God's provision for 'tha taking 
away of .man's transgression, 
"-* " rh * ***■*■• Cris* '"' 

The second cross brings in a mes- 
sage of salvation received. It speaks 
to us first of all of a realization of tha 
need for a substitute, and also convic- 
tion of sin. When, the thief cried, 
"Lord' remember me," he was voicing 
the plea of the publican, "God be mer- 
ciful to me the sinner." This Is fol- 
lowed by faith Id him. It Is one thlQg 
to- have faith. It ts another to have 
faith In- the proper object Faith In- 
deed wives us, bnt It la faith In Christ 
alone, One may have good faith In 
a bank, and yet lose his money, not 
because there was. anything wrong 
'with the faith; but because there wss 
something wrong with the object, of 
the faltK. One may have-good faith 
In many things and lose hla souL not 
because there Is anything wrong with 
the faith, hat because that. filth has 
not been centered In the Lord Jeans 
Christ, who alone is. God's provision 
for man's atn. This dying thief could 
not come down from the cross and go 
back over his record and undo the 
things which he bad done. Be con! 8 
not make" restitution ;'he conld not blot 
out hla record, nor was he given tinie 
to come from the cross and live a goodt 
and upright life, but if he. were .saved" 
at all. Jte had to be saved by what 
Christ'did and not by anything which 
■he could do added to what Christ, had 
done. | '.' - , - 

Tha Third Cross. 
The message from, the third cross 
■peaks of the Insanity of sin. ' 
Is a story, (old of a yonng man who 
hs'l committed a crime for which he 
was tried and found guilty and sen-, 
tented to a peril tertiary. After he had 
been placed In the prison, his. mother. 
*t the expense of s great deal n* tiros 
and care, and with many tears. Qnslly 
■ncceeded. In securing for him pardon 
from the governor of the state. With 
Jayous heart, feeling well repaid for 
ghe 'long weeks'nf crasetesa effort, She 
■vent to the penitentiary-. bearing the 
precious pardon which would liberate 
her- l>. ye. When st last -she stood In 
presence with tear* of Joy la 'her 
she handed to hrr boy Ms par- 
Instead of hrrftarsraternl, and In- 
stead of accepting and making' use 
of ' the pardon, the hoy deliberately 
tore It Into piece*, throwing It npon 
rhe floor, and stamped "upon it with 
disdain. It in-!t-ij« nut the sinner who 
rejects Ood~s proffered salvation treats 
what God has to offer. ..'it la the In- 
sanity .of sin leadtns on f« .oiclde ti*

Jesus ■Vtraycd and denied. 

ooloe.t text- He «u despised and 
ralectsd of racn. r m. W:J. 

In teaching this lesson to some of 
the younger classes, emphas's might be 
placed upon the. dramatic scene in the 
garden of Gethsemane, sod Peter's de- 
nial at the lire. In some .of the Inter- 
mediate classes the scholars might be. 
asked to write short, one-mlnnte es- 
says, describing the scene as though 
they, tberaselvea, were present. -Tor 
the adult classes of coarse the central 
theme Is the way that Christ's follow- 
ers neglect him today even as the dis- 
ciples slept In Gethsemane, and be- 
trayed him like Judas or denied hlsc 
like Peter. ; 
I. The Place of Retreat (w. 1-3). In 
■ emphasis upon the spiritual gran-' 
deur of the deity of Jesus, John does 
dwell upon the agony In the gar- 
den. He, however, gives us that noblest 
passage in the New Testament (chs. 
14-17), trie like of which cannot. -be 
found anywhere else In the world's 
writings. Having spoken these words, 
Jesus and his disciples went over the 
Brook Kedron (v, 1) to the garden, 
there to bear the awful weight of 
agony thnt wns crushing blm (Mntt. 
M.:38). while at the spine time he must 
strengthen his disciples* and fortify 
them against the coming trials. That 
(Ills plnre was a place of frequent re- 
sort for Jesus, Judns wns awn re. It was 
a sanctuary in which Jesus met the 
Father, and those ■ who knew him 
knew. It-as a place. of prayer, and the 
most likely place to find hjni at that 
time of night (v. 3). Rebuffed at 
Mary's prodigality, Judas had consort- 
ed. with the priests, nnd now covetoua- 
ness Is to reap its reward, Judns was 
not hardened In a day. His greed for 
money, while at the some tinie listen- 
ing to the teachings of Jesus,, had 
gradually hardened bis heart. 

II. Protecting' and Pretesting (w. 
4-11). (Sep Matt. 26; Usrfc 14; Lnke 
22), Jesus went forth In order (o -con- 
centrate the attention of the soldiers 
npon himself, and to prevent a general 
attack upon the disciples.- In answer 
to his question, they said they were 
seeking "Jesus, Ihe Nnzarene," a term 
of contempt which Jesus answered by 
snylngj "I am he." John adds, "nnd 
Judas, also which betrayed him stood 
with them." Greed for money, grow- 
ing Into theft and' falseness of life, 
ended with the blackest crime the 
world has ever known. His salutation 
sent them backward (v. B). . Berhsps 
among the officers were some who bad 
failed to. arrest blm on a former occa- 
sion (ch. T:4fl), and who were now. 
overawed by bis marvelous words and 
majestic bearing. Again he answered, 
rVHiom seek-yer <v. 7), and they 
said, "Jesus fit' ftaxareth," the same 
words as before, but, ofooaWy In a 
changed tone, showing /hat they were 
prepared to listen with/ respect, thoilgb 
certainly sot with, reverence, to what 
be might have to offer. What a dra- 
matic picture — the braienness of sin, 
Judas who stood among the. enemy, 
and the fearlessness of virtue. Jesus. 
facing his accusers. Augustine, com- 
menting on this verse, wiys, "What 
will be do when he comes as n guest. 
If he' did this when .giving himself up 
as a prisoner T* His act. however. 
shielded hi* disciples, for not .one of 
them was to be lost (v.B R. v.). and 
he knew they were not. strong enough 
yet to stead the test of, arrest and 
trial. At this point Peter attempts to 
defend Jesus (v. 10). 

111. Peter Denying (w. IR-1T). A* 
Jesn* was led away, bis disciples for- 
sook him. They all left falm, and fled, 
but Miiidi adds thnt a certain young 
man followed Jesna. It la conjectured 
that this young man was'Uark. With 
quickness. of action as are now trans- 
ported to the Judgment hall. There 
we see blm bound, with his hands 
shackled, behind his hack, and led 
first to Annas (v. 13), which was an 11-. 
legal transaction, "as though some 
reformer should be tried at Tammany, 
bairin New York" (Robert E. Sneer), 
Annas was now very old. Prom him 
be was taken to Caiaphas, followed" by 
Peter "afar off," now in a different 
moQd than when he smote the high. 
priest's servant"* ear. With him was 
that other disciple (John's way of re- 
ferring to' himself). Now Jnbn was 
known to ihe high priest, 'and he. went 
In wtth Jesna Intjo the nalHre, but 
Peter wns sfsndlmr without at -the 
door. Notice ihe steps of his failure; 
Flr*t. 'he. ."slept" In the garden: sec- 
ond, be followed "afat off" (Luke 
32:114); thi rd. J he ' -*t™rf" without: 
fourth, hi* "sat;* In the midst. 

Then notice the denials, ihe. last scv 
companled by pursing.' Attempts to 
compromise with the. world meet with 
"the same measure of failure today as 
when Peter wss In the Jarteroent hall. 
Bad company ls>s good thing to keep 
oot of unless gone Into'.tn witness for 
Christ. Peter- dirt Aot have that pur- 
pose. The Lord bad only to "look" at 
Peter (Lnke=3:fll) and (he "remem- 
bered." We may deny Christ by our 
sllence. by remaining ounirte of the 
ehorch. by denying hla existence.- by 
profanity, by ridiculing his friends 
by praising" sis ene»lnr or by living 
a life of wbridrlness.
